Fourth Quarter 2012 Financial Results

NET REVENUES

Net revenues increased by 136.3% year-over-year to RMB266.8 million (US$42.8 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012 from RMB112.9 million in the corresponding period of 2011, primarily driven by the increase in IVAS revenues and to a lesser extent, an increase in the Company's online advertising revenues from 61 advertisers.

IVAS revenues, which consisted of revenues from online games, YY Music as well as other sources including membership program, increased by 169.1% year-over-year to RMB233.0 million (US$37.4 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012 from RMB86.6 million in the corresponding period of 2011. The overall increase primarily reflected an increase in average revenue per user ("ARPU") and an increase in the number of paying users.

Revenues from online games increased by 86.3% year-over-year to RMB98.0 million (US$15.7 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012 from RMB52.6 million in the corresponding period of 2011. This increase primarily reflected an increase in ARPU of 79.7% to RMB266 from 368,000 total paying users2 and in increase in the number of online games to 73 during the fourth quarter of 2012 from 69 in the third quarter.

Revenues from YY Music, which was officially launched in March 2011, increased by 317.7% year-over-year to RMB106.1 million (US$17.0 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012 from RMB25.4 million in the corresponding period of 2011. This increase primarily reflected a 176.1% increase in ARPU to RMB312 and a 51.1% increase in the number of paying users to 340,000 during the fourth quarter of 2012.

Revenues from others, which primarily consist of the Company's membership program, increased by 234.9% year-over-year to RMB28.8 million (US$4.6 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012 from RMB8.6 million in the corresponding period of 2011. Revenues from the membership program, which was launched in October 2011, increased by 426.5% year-over-year to RMB25.8 million (US$4.1 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012 from RMB4.9 million in the corresponding period of 2011. This increase primarily reflected a 319.0% increase in ARPU to RMB88 from 294,000 total paying users. As of December 31, 2012, the Company had approximately 508,000 members in the membership program3, an increase of 221.5% from the 158,000 members it had as of December 31, 2011.

Online advertising revenues increased by 28.0% year-over-year to RMB33.8 million (US$5.4 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012 from RMB26.4 million in the corresponding period of 2011. This increase reflected a 36.6% increase in average revenue per advertiser ("ARPA") to approximately RMB554,000.

COST OF REVENUES AND GROSS PROFIT

Cost of revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased to RMB138.9 million (US$22.3 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012 from RMB56.0 million in the corresponding period of 2011. This increase was primarily attributable to an increase in YY Music activities costs and bandwidth costs. YY Music activities costs increased to RMB45.3 million (US$7.3 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012 from RMB3.5 million in the corresponding period of 2011 reflecting the Company's efforts to incentivize performers and channel owners through increased commissions, resulting in improved musical content and higher levels of user engagement and spending. Bandwidth costs increased by 66.9% year-over-year to RMB42.4 million (US$6.8 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012 from RMB25.4 million in the corresponding period of 2011, reflecting the increased amount of bandwidth necessary to support YY Music as well as audio and video functionality offered on an increasing number of YY's channels as well as the expansion of the overall user base.

Gross profit increased by 124.8% year-over-year to RMB127.9 million (US$20.5 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012 from RMB56.9 million in the corresponding period of 2011. Gross margin was 47.9% in the fourth quarter of 2012, as compared to 50.4% in the corresponding period of 2011, mainly due to the aforementioned increase in YY Music activities costs associated with the Company's efforts to improve musical content and increase user engagement and spending.

OPERATING INCOME

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased by 44.5% year-over-year to RMB93.8 million (US$15.1 million) from RMB64.9 million. This increase was primarily attributable to an increase in research and development ("R&D") expenses that resulted from increased headcount in R&D to accommodate the overall growth of the Company's business.

Operating income in the fourth quarter of 2012 increased to RMB35.2 million (US$5.6 million), compared to an operating loss of RMB6.0 million in the corresponding period of 2011. Operating margin was 13.2% in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to an operating loss margin of 5.3% in the corresponding period of 2011. The increase in operating margin was primarily due to a result of our operating leverage in R&D, sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses associated with the Company's expansion as compared to net revenue growth.

NET INCOME

Net income attributable to YY increased significantly to RMB33.2 million (US$5.3 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012, from RMB4.0 million in the corresponding period of 2011.

Net income attributable to common shareholders was RMB1.15 billion(US$184.1 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to a net loss attributable to common shareholders of RMB18.9 million in the corresponding period of 2011. The increase in net income attributable to common shareholders was primarily attributable to a decretion to the convertible redeemable preferred shares redemption value of RMB1.41 billion (US$226.2 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to accretion to convertible redeemable preferred shares redemption value of RMB22.9 million in the corresponding period of 2011. The major reason for the decretion to convertible redeemable preferred shares redemption value is that the initial public offering price is lower than the fair value per common share since September 30, 2012. The accretion/decretion to the convertible redeemable preferred shares redemption value and income allocation expense to participating preferred shares were charges related to the preferred shares which were automatically converted to common shares upon the completion of the Company's initial public offering on November 21, 2012 and therefore, are expected to be non-recurring following the Company's initial public offering.

Diluted net income per ADS4 in the fourth quarter of 2012 increased to RMB0.63 (US$0.10), compared to a diluted net loss per ADS of RMB0.74 in the corresponding period of 2011.

Non-GAAP net income attributable to YY, which excludes share-based compensation expenses, increased by 80.9% year-over-year to RMB58.8 million (US$9.4 million) from RMB32.5 million in the corresponding period of 2011. Non-GAAP net income per ADS was RMB29.56 (US$4.74), as compared to RMB0.22 in the corresponding period of 2011.

As of December 31, 2012, the Company had a total of 1,087.2 million common shares outstanding, or the equivalents of 54.4 million ADSs outstanding.

BALANCE SHEET AND CASH FLOWS

As of December 31, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of RMB504.7 million (US$81.0 million) and short-term deposits of RMB897.7 million (US$144.1 million). For the fourth quarter of 2012, net cash from operating activities was RMB128.6 million (US$20.6 million).

IVAS revenues increased by 202.2% to RMB702.4 million (US$112.7 million) in 2012 from RMB232.4 million in 2011. The increase was primarily attributable to the increased revenues from YY music and online games, and to a lesser extent, YY's membership program.

Among other things, the business outlook and quotations from management in this announcement, as well as YY's strategic and operational plans, contain forward-looking statements. YY may also make written or oral forward-looking statements in its periodic reports to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), in its annual report to shareholders, in press releases and other written materials and in oral statements made by its officers, directors or employees to third parties. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about YY's beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements.

A number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement, including but not limited to the following: YY's goals and strategies; YY's future business development, results of operations and financial condition; the expected growth of the online communication social platform market in China; the expectation regarding the rate at which to gain registered user accounts, active users, especially paying users; YY's ability to monetize the user base; YY's ability to continue attracting advertisers and offering popular online games; fluctuations in general economic and business conditions in China and assumptions underlying or related to any of the foregoing.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial information is prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"), except that the consolidated statement of Changes in shareholders' equity (deficits), consolidated statements of cash flows, and the detailed notes have not been presented. YY uses non-GAAP net income/(loss), which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Non-GAAP net income/(loss) is net income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation expenses. The Company believes that separate analysis and exclusion of the non-cash impact of share-based compensation adds clarity to the constituent parts of its performance. The Company reviews these non-GAAP financial measures together with GAAP financial measures to obtain a better understanding of its operating performance. It uses the non-GAAP financial measure for planning, forecasting and measuring results against the forecast. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measure is useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance without the effect of non-cash share-based compensation expenses, which have been and will continue to be significant recurring expenses in its business. However, the use of non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not include all items that impact the Company's net income/(loss) for the period. In addition, because non-GAAP financial measures are not measured in the same manner by all companies, they may not be comparable to other similar titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider non-GAAP financial measure in isolation from or as an alternative to the financial measure prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S.GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "YY Inc. Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" at the end of this release.

1 Non-GAAP income/(loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation expenses.

2 Data for online games refers exclusively to data regarding YY platform's web games available in the game center.

3 Members in the membership program are defined as any users who subscribed to the Company's membership program and paid the monthly subscription fee for the relevant period.

All outstanding convertible and redeemable preferred shares were automatically converted into common shares upon the completion of the Company's IPO on November 21, 2012. Thereafter, there was no accretion/ decretion and allocation of net income to the convertible and redeemable preferred shares and all net income was attributable to the common shareholders subsequent to IPO.
